London Lit Lab: Writers’ Workshops: Mondays with Zoe Gilbert
Mon 20 Nov 2023 to Mon 17 Jun 2024
Are you reaching the stage with your writing project where you need some constructive feedback? Would you like some help getting your manuscript finished and taking the next steps towards publication? If you want regular feedback, support, and a group of writers with whom to discuss good writing every month, these sessions are for you.

Getting through the final stretch on your manuscript can be tough on your own, whether you’ve had support during a previous course or not. This is a common difficulty for creative writers coming out of MA courses, but it affects all lone writers. These sessions will help you keep up your writing momentum, with the aim of finishing your book and being ready to find it a home.

For the last six years, we have hosted these monthly workshops, bringing together writers who are all at the stage where constructive feedback is just what’s needed. We used to call these the Post-MA Sessions, but over that time we have met so many writers at exactly the same stage as those graduating from creative writing programmes, ready to both give and receive feedback, that we changed the name to Writers’ Workshops. You are very welcome on this course whether or not you have any formal creative writing qualification.

These details are for the Writers’ Workshops with Zoe Gilbert, on Monday evenings. You can find details of the parallel group with Lily Dunn on Thursday evenings here 

Whether you are writing short stories, memoir or a novel, including genre or YA fiction, you are welcome to join one of these groups.

Zoe Gilbert is the author of two novels, Folk (Bloomsbury, 2018), which was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize and adapted for BBC radio, and Mischief Acts (Bloomsbury, 2022), which was a Sunday Times book of the year. Her short stories have been published widely and broadcast on Radio 4, and won prizes including the Costa Short Story Award. She is co-founder of London Lit Lab.
